MSNBC: Keith Olbermann And Chris Matthews Out - David Gregory In

Looks like Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews have gone one step too far with their opinionated political coverage.

MSNBC has announced the two anchors are being removed from all political coverage due to their biased and opinionated reporting.

Both Olbermann and Matthews were scheduled to host the approaching debates between John McCain and Barrack Obama, but will now be replaced by David Gregory.

Gregory, the old hand Washington political reporter, will anchor all of MSNBC's coverage of the presidential and vice presidential debates and election night coverage, network spokesman Jeremy Gaines said Sunday.

The tipping point came during the Republican convention when Keith Olbermann criticized the showing of a September 11 tribute video presented by the Republicans.

Even more embarrassing for the network was when Joe Scarborough was talking about the positive changes in John McCain's campaign, and Olbermann was heard on an offstage microphone saying: "Jesus, Joe, why don't you get a shovel?"

"Fair And Balanced" and "We Report, You Decide" kind of takes on a new meaning with these guys.
